This is my second time staying at the charming Lavender Inn in Ojai. All the rooms are lovely--artfully decorated with lots of natural light. The Inn is also incredibly well-located. It's directly next to the Sunday farmers market, a block from downtown Ojai Ave., a 5 minute drive or 15 minute walk to the scenic Shelf hiking trail, and half a mile from Hip, a delicious vegan eatery where we had lunch everyday.
In fact, the Inn is both vegan-friendly and dog-friendly, so my family was able to enjoy delicious, abundant, vegan breakfasts every morning, as well as bring our two dogs along to enjoy our vacation with us. The enormous backyard made it easy to take care of the dogs' needs too.
Beth, Erin, and Diana are amazing inn-keepers and made our stay truly memorable. I'll be back again soon, most likely to celebrate my wedding anniversary in a few months.
